Looking for Dubai Flights?
Learn About Your Options & Cost
Hi, Sunil here to talk about Dubai flights
I didn't used to think so.
But when I first traveled to Dubai a few years ago I realized how busy the Dubai airport was.
The trip was an eye-opener in more ways than one, from the vast number of Dubai flights that are available to working out the best and the worst of the lot.
I love traveling to different places but am not all that keen on flying despite the number of flights I have been on; it is just that I have never been able to get my mind around the fact that a machine weighing in tons is going to take off with me on board. In addition, I just get this sick feeling I hate.
Despite that inane fear and feeling, I have flown quite a lot and one of the first things you come to expect on stepping into a plane is a properly rendered speech on flight safety by one of the stewards or stewardess.
There of course there are all those factors that make up the actual in-flight experience.
I have flown Emirates, KLM and Continental airlines to Dubai and my experience with each has been wonderful.
I have heard some negative things about British Airways but I can't vouch for their service myself as I have never flown them to Dubai.
The deals seem pretty good though whenever I have searched for airline tickets to Dubai.
I have done a lot of research on the best Dubai flights and have found four airlines that are far ahead of all others; Emirates Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airlines and Gulf Air. These are the airlines that provide the very best in customer service, cuisine and on-air facilities.
Naturally, like me, you would want to enjoy a personalized service without having to pay first class to do so. Going by the rave reviews that some of these other airlines have got, the four mentioned above are the ones to travel with in order to enjoy such service.
I plan to do most of my traveling exclusively by any one of them and in addition to the Ã¢â‚¬Ëœnear perfectÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ service that they provide, they have initiated some great travel deals which should save us a bundle on future Dubai flights.
You have a ton of other options of getting to Dubai as it is literally a junction point for most of the major airways. But if you want the best in flight experiences then you should consider one of the four mentioned above. Particularly, consider Emirates.
Not only have they been repeatedly voted best airlines in the world, but I have personally experienced their flights multiple times. Their customer service and facilities are truly far more superior to any other airlines. Sitting in their first class or business class cabin is no less than experiencing heaven (figuratively).
Where Are You Traveling From? (All figures as of 2008)
If you are currently in Los Angeles, then the best flight option to Dubai for you would have to be either Alitalia or United Airlines, with one stop included and a price tag roughly between $1,500-$2,000.
But if you are residing in the United Kingdom or anywhere else in Europe and would like to make the trip to Dubai, then you may find yourself with one too many options. The cost for a round trip from London to Dubai should set you back by $700 or so at the least and the most expensive flight option should cost you a just little more than that.
Most of the flight options that cost more than $1,000 a ticket are generally non-stop, so that is a plus. Personally, if I am going to be shelling out a thousand bucks for an airfare to Dubai, the least I expect is a hassle free direct flight to my destination.
From the United States, there is not much of a chance of you getting on a direct non-stop flight as the distance to be covered is quite long. So a stop becomes quite essential, if not for anything else, then at least for fuel. After all, none of us want to fall out in mid air, do we?
That said, there are direct Dubai flights from the US from bigger cities like New York, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta. You can always take a domestic flight to any one of those cities and take a non-stop flight to Dubai from thereon. Sometimes this may work out cheaper. You just have to run the numbers.
So if you are traveling from United States to Dubai, most if not all of your flight options will cost around $1,500-2000 and the duration of the flight should vary anywhere between 15 hrs and 25 hrs (including layovers). In comparison, the duration of a flight from Europe to Dubai should not exceed 8hrs and from Asia it should vary between 4 hrs and 9 hrs, depending on the number of stops plus the origin of the plane itself.
Most of the airlines tend to stopover at a place or two enroute to the destination, so take care to make sure that you know what you are getting. One my plane had a 7 hour stopover in Amsterdam while en route to Dubai. Amsterdam is great, but I've seen most of it and didn't have the desire at the time of my trip to sightsee.
So if you are not interested in hanging out at some airport gawking at all and sundry, or getting out for a quick tour of the stop over city, book yourself on one of the direct Dubai flights with no stopover in between. It may cost a little bit more, but given the stopover experiences, I think that the price tag is definitely worth it to some of us.Book through our pre arranged partner to any flight to Dubai and save significantly on your travel.
